I toured Lakeshore Elementary this week. You can read my write up here. Before I went on the tour I looked up the boundaries for Lakeshore and I was kind of shocked by how small and unpopulated the school’s boundaries seem to be. I highly recommend anyone who doesn’t like/thinks they won’t get into their neighborhood school (so, um, just about everyone I’ve talked to so far) check it out. Its way in the SW of the city so understandably not logistically possible for some, but it’s a nice school and with FOUR GE kindergarten classes, I can’t imagine it will fill with neighborhood kids.
PS- I asked the principal there if she had heard any buzz from the district about changing start times now that the bussing is going to be limited and she said she hadn’t heard a thing on that topic. Anyone else ask principals this? I’m very curious and don’t want start times to be any part of my decision process if they are going to change them up.
